After accomplishing a couple of incredible PRs in the half marathon distance, I decided to "seek discomfort" (as my friend Katelyn puts it) and push to get a 10k PR. The 10k is my least favorite race distance. It is too short to take it easy, and a long distance to go all out. It … Continue reading Race Recap: Greater Midland Dow RunWalk 10k 2019
Non-runners probably won't understand how a particular race can hold so much meaning for someone. Especially a small little race like the Mid-Land Half, 10k and 5k. But this one is more than just a run for me, in so many ways. In fact, it holds so much emotion for me that I didn't even … Continue reading Race Recap: Mid-Land 10k
Every year in June, the hospital that I work for puts on a 5k/10k race. Last year was my first time running the race, and I ran the 5k with my boss... it was his first official 5k race, and I set my own PR that day! When I signed up for the race this year, … Continue reading Race Recap: 2016 Bee Healthy for Life 10k
Hello friends. It sure has been a while. I have been really busy - in the beginning of October, I stood up in my best friend's wedding. And just like the last time I stood up in a friend's wedding, my training and eating went :::whoosh!::: right out the window! I hardly ran at all … Continue reading Race Recap: Race for Makueni and Mid-Land 10ks
I wanted to run in a race every month this year, but between schedule conflicts and budget constraints, I wasn't able to register for a race in March. I was determined, though, to run a race. Particularly to run a 10k. So I mapped out a route from my house, set my Endomondo to race … Continue reading Race Recap: A 10k On My Own
I can't believe that March is almost coming to an end, and this is the first time I am posting about my miles for the year! 2015 has been a busy year so far, and it is only going to get busier. But recently I have really put my mind to keeping active and fueling … Continue reading Banking the Miles 2015: First Update!
"It'll be fun!" she said. "Just a few little hills!" she said. Those were the thoughts going through my head as I climbed the first "little hill" in the 2015 Winterlaufe race and saw rolling hills ahead of me. More than just a few. And not little! As you might recall, one of my goals … Continue reading Race Recap: Winterlaufe 2015 8k
So here's my list of goals for 2014, minus the ones that I decided not to accomplish earlier this year. I finished 10/27 of last year's goals, not too shabby! I'm ready to start a new list of goals for 2015. Cancel my membership at my current gym and get a new membership somewhere else … Continue reading Keeping It Real: My Goals for 2014, Accomplished?
This post will be my go-to for the races I want to run this year. One of my goals is to run one race every month in 2015. My big goal of the year is to run a half marathon! I will probably aim to run the Mid-Land Half in November, but who knows... maybe … Continue reading Ready To Go in 2015!
Last year, this race kicked my butt. This year, I OWNED it. I had both better training and the weather on my side. It was 11 degrees cooler this year compared to last year. I have been running on average about 8-10 miles per week, in June 2013 I was only running 4-5. Oh yeah, … Continue reading Race Recap: The Little Foot Run 5k
Yep, you read that title right. I ran my first 10k today! You might remember the post I made about a month ago about the freezing cold race that I ran on February 15th, The Ice Cube 5k. The Muddogs Race is the third and final race in the Winter Warriors series. These winter … Continue reading Race Recap: The Muddogs 10k
I can't believe February is officially over! Although I didn't accomplish my goal of an entire month of movement, I must say I am pretty darn proud of myself. I exercised 24 out of 28 days, and even if you don't count the days where I cleaned instead of doing a workout, I still exercised … Continue reading Month of Movement: Week 4 Wrap Up
